2022 Mugello Moto2 Qualifying Result: The New Contenders

The clouds that caused trouble in MotoGP stayed around for the intermediate class battle but the rain flags went away and the fight for pole could go ahead uninterrupted. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the leading characters were the men of the moment, Aron Canet and Pedro Acosta, both riders enjoying stints at the top of the timing screens until Canet settled pole position in the final few minutes of Q2. The Flexbox rider took his third Moto2 pole by a tenth of a second from rookie Acosta, while Sam Lowes joined them on the front row of the grid.

After an eventful morning, Celestino Vietti got up to speed to climb onto the second row, ahead of a blast from the past, Mattia Pasini making a fine return to the world championship by leading Q1 and qualifying as high as fifth on the grid for another adventure on home soil. Ai Ogura joins them on the second row, with Joe Roberts seventh, ahead of Q1 escapee Tony Arbolino and Jake Dixon.

Barry Baltus continued to impress in 10th place, while Lorenzo Dalla Porta is also starting to pick up the pace with 11th, ahead of Jorge Navarro, who completes fourth row. The Spanish trio of Albert Arenas, Augusto Fernandez and Fermín Aldeguer makes up row five, ahead of Marcos Ramirez, Bo Bendsneyder and Cameron Beaubier.
